#22 - Ramon Van Merkenstein, June 30th 2020

There we go. After long weeks of lockdown, it’s finally time for the music to be played together again. Playing, creating, experimenting, improvising... together. Because music is above all the meeting of different singular universes to build a unity. Rehearsals and residencies have restarted and the walls of the Jazz Station are vibrating again. While waiting for the expected revival of the concerts, and its share of applause, the smell of Zinnebir, and the delirious crowd, let’s discover how the musicians experienced the (de)confinement in music, by listening to their rehearsals.

For this twenty-second episode, we asked some questions to the bassist Ramon Van Merkenstein, after his rehearsal on June 30th.
